The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, OCT 16, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 October 1869

ECHUCA, SATURDAY, OCT 16, 18G9. At the meeting of the Municipal Council of JJeniliquin, on Wednesday last, it was re solved that a petition should be addressed to the Postmaster-General of New South Wales, representing; the hardship of paying sixpence for a letter to Victoria, and asking that the rate should be reduced to fourpence. It was also determined that the co-operation of the Borough Council of Ectiuca should be sought. This is a matter to which we have frequently endeavoured to call attention. It constitutes a grievance for which it is surprising ener getic steps have not been earlier taken to obtain a remedy.. The local bodies of Denih quin and Echuca, however, can act in concert, so far as it lies in their power, in endeavoring to obtain a reduction of a taxation which affects the inhabitants of both towns. It has been said that the postal charges complained of matter very little to those who reside immediately on the borders, as they have only to cross the river and post...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. A FALSE ACCUSATION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 October 1869

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. A FALSE ACCUSATION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) oir,—In reference to the letter signed " Fellow-feeling," I wish to dear myfc'elf before the public as regards the picking up of portions of a human body and secreting them. The facts are these:—Myself and Mr Watson were riding through the bush after cattle, when we came upon some bones which we thought were Blackfellows'. Watson got off his horse and picked up what proved to be a skull, which I said I would take for curiosity, which I afterwards showed to several people. As far as secreting it in my place, it is nothing but a slanderous falsehood, done simply to injure me and my character. As for " Fellow-feeling," I shall endeavor to find out his real name, and treat him ac cording to the reward he deserves at the hands ot your obedient servant, JOHN ROGERS. Jones Quamby. [We understand that every necessary en quiry has been made, and that the police are satisfied the statement made by Mr Rogers i...

STRAY STRAWS. [by watch em.J •• j.i is an in wroa taac diows no ooay gooa 1 " I am told that is an old Scotch adage. If so it is remarkably true ! As for myself, I might almost say that any wind, no matter from what quarter, suits me, but 1 like a good southerly if I have my choice. By the bye ! there is a nice little breeze springing up just now which would assist the people of Echuca along the flood to fortune, if they would only trim their sails properly, and look well ahead. The people of Melbourne, the journals of Melbourne, assisted by that antiquated body the Centrnl Board of Health, are u9ing all their energies with a view of not only pre venting any new factories being established in or around Melbourne, but actually to drive those already established away from the place. I have no doubt Melbourne is right, must be right, bound to be right.

They were generally of good quality, and a fair proportion prime. There was a reduction of fully 20s on last week's quotations, which is accounted for by the absence of country buyers and over supply of fat lambs. Several lots, it is said, were bought tiy graziers. One lot, Mr Vincent Dowling's, from the Paroo, are reported to have arrived in splendid condition, in charge of Mr Podmore, but unfortunately came to a bad market.

THE EXCURSION TRAINS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 October 1869

THE EXCURSION TRAINS. (To the Editor of the Riverine IIera{d.') Sir,—I have often been surprised at your self and the editors of the up-country news papers overlooking the gross injustice the Government commit towards all the country towns in the management of the excursion tickets, everything being done to favor Mel bourne at the expense of nil other towns. I can speak for myself, and I am sure for many I others, that I have friends in Castlemaine, | Sandhurst, and other towns I should be glad to go and see, and as I am a paterfamilias I would occasionally take some of my olive branches with n>e; but the Government say no; if you or your friends want a holiday you must go to Melbourne, if you do not want to go to Melbourne you must forego your holiday, or pay the ordinary charge. I think even the Government lose by this system, and I trust you will interest yourself in putting this matter strongly before the Government, and you will call the attention of your brother chips to th...

SUDDEN DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 October 1869

SUDDEN DEATH. We regret to have to record the death of Mr John Williams, proprietor and landlord of the Border Inn, at the Horse-shoe Lagoon, Moama. Mr Williams, it is supposed, was thrown from his horse on Friday evening1, having been found lying in a state of insensibility in Hare-street. He was taken home and was attended by Dr Crossen, who found him sufFering from concussion of the brain. He died on Saturday. A magisterial enquiry was hold on his remains by Mr Maunsell, P.M., when it was found that death had been caused by injuries supposed to have been received from a fall from his horse, but there was no positive evidence to show that he had so fallen. There can be no doubt, however, that such was the case. Mr Williams ha3 for many years been engaged in the carrying trade. Ho was formerly resident in Collingwood, and has been living at Moama for about three years. He was very generally respected. His funeral took place on Monday, when a large number of his friends followed him...

STRAY STRAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 October 1869

STRAY STRAWS. BY WATCHEM.J Last week, Mr Editor, I invited you to ray gum tree address in the Victoria Park. I now Lave to express a hope that you did not attempt to discover my whereabouts in that locality for to tell you the truth I found it absolutely necessary, shortly after writing you, to quit that gay and festive scene. Con stitutionally I am a hungry man, and conse quently require something to keep body and soul together, but that something was not to be obtained in the Victoria Park. I have a ;■penchant for opossums, and I naturally con cluded that I should not experience much difficulty in obtaining a supply (at any rate) sufficient for my own consumption ; but, alas ! I was doomed to disappointment, as I ever have been through life. Hunger increasing, I naturally began to seek the cause for the absence of those little ring-tailed squealers, and I soon learned that some of the opossums' favorite old gum trees had been ruthlessly cut down to make room for trees from other c...

This omission we have certainly been guilty of, through forgetfulness, in fact, but I trust the other members of the Council will not look upon our offence in such a serious light as His Worship has done, and will accept our assurance that no disrespect was intended any member of the Council, and that it was our intention to have an applica tion in at the first meeting. I might further mention thai the advertisement has been withdrawn until such time as our application has been dealt ...

SHOCKING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 October 1869

SHOCKING ACCIDENT. 1 A large number of persons in Eckuca will hear with great regret of the occurrence of an accident of a frightful nature to Mr John Johnson, who for a long time carried on his trade of a plasterer in this place. We learn from the local paper that on the 12th inst. ho was working at a new building in the main street at Pleasant Creek, when, in ascending a ladder with some articles upon his shoulder, he overbalanced, and fell to the ground head first, when he came in contact with a shovel handle sticking upright in a heap of mortar. The handle entered Johnson's abdomen below the bowels, and protruded again at the lower part of the body, literally spitting the sufferer. Johnson was, of course, taken to the Hospital, and hopes are entertained of his recovery.

SWAN HILL. 13th October. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 October 1869

SWAN HfLL. tfrom the puntmaji.l 13th October. | Saturday last, as most of your readers know, was an election day with us; there was not very much stir about the town for all. Of course, like n good man and true, I went to the polling booth and recorded my vote, but up to the present time I have not ascertained what effect it has had upon the returns for Crowlands; for I cannot afford to indulge in private telegrams; and somehow or other the folks that used to be so ready to impart all kinds of news, good bad and in different, public and private, domestic and political, to me, have suddenly assumed a painful reserve towards any enquiries I make. I have a kind of presentiment, however, that Mr Treasurer Byrne will have collapsed; not that I am any friend to the late Ministry, not a bit of- it. I was always opposed to them, at all events ever since the Protection of Native Industries Bill passed, and King Crispin of this ilk clapt an extra half-a-crown on my bluchers; for you see there...
